Map Overlay Project

Submitted by on September 25, 2010 – 2:25 pmOne Comment

I just saw a great example and explanation of the map overlay project that we recommend in Tapestry of Grace. Since some of you moms may have gotten yourselves squared away enough to want to add “layers” to your homeschool project list, I’m post the link here. I love the way Laurie shows a variety of applications for this kind of map work, and explains the benefits that her kids have gotten from it.

    Did the transparency project years 1 and 2. However when we got to year 3 discovered the base maps aren’t as helpful, ex fewer boundaries drawn in, no color. A lot of freehand work will be required. As a result my children have preferred not to do it but to use the regular maps each week. We did enjoy the transparency project quite a bit the first 2 years.
